Percy and Rose - Melbourne Theatre Company 1983

by Rob George - Collaboration with Maureen Sherlock

Pianist and composer Percy Grainger, (“Danny Boy,” “English Country Gardens”) had a very close relationship with his mother, Rose. There were rumours of incest. Percy was one of the world’s greatest eccentrics – he experimented with bizarre music, weird clothes and sado masochism and he also tried to change the English language. Beginning with his childhood in Australia, the play focuses on Percy’s relationship with his mother and its disastrous impact on the other loves of Percy’s life. Percy and Rose move to London when he is a teenager in order to study with the greats. At the outbreak of World War I they move to New York with Percy joining the Army Band as a saxophonist. Rose suffers from syphilis, committing suicide while Percy is touring. With Rose’s death Percy finally manages to find true love.
